Thread: After standby there is no login box

  1. #1

    Default After standby there is no login box

    Suse 13.1 x64 on AMD A8 APU

    If the powesaving comes in, for example standby, when resuming I'm left with the topbar and the volume controls but no login box to input password and no way to resume system activity, only way is hitting ctrl alt f1 and do a reboot.
    Now I know there is a similar problem on KDE and if I remember correctly there is a patch already but my problem is on Gnome.
    I have collected some log files if they are useful in diagnosing the issue.
    In KDE you have options to configure screenlocker to somewhat prevent this but I can find such config tool in GNOME.

    I seem to recall that this happened to me. So I used CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE (twice) to crash the X session, and then logged in again.

    After some frustration with this happening, I accidentally discovered that all I had to do was hit ENTER and a login box would appear.
